Luxury Villa rentals can be a little questionable with so many options available online that it can be a little daunting in terms of what you are getting for the price. Recently, I flew to Puerto Vallarta to try out a villa located in the Punta Mita development about 40 minutes from the airport. Located in this luxury private community were resorts like The Four Seasons and the St Regis. Casa Koko is a nine bedroom masterpiece that is available to rent. This home was designed by renowned architects Juan Collignon and Manolo Mestre and interior designer Karen Collignon. Casa Koko is a spectacular private oceanfront villa and can accommodate up to 22 guests (18 adults and 4 children).
Why choose Casa Koko?
Casa Koko is the perfect house to celebrate a special birthday, anniversary, holiday or getting a group of your favorite people together. It boasts two oceanfront master suites, two ocean view guest suites, and five garden bedrooms. All bedrooms offer en-suite bathrooms. It’s the perfect setting for the ultimate family or group getaway! Casa Koko comes fully staffed with maid service, onsite concierge, house manager and chef prepared meals. It even has its own spa, bicycles and fitness center.
I recently put together a group of clients in the fields of fashion, music and wellness. Our goal was to use Casa Koko’s amazing décor and design elements as the perfect backdrop to shoot some amazing pictures. We were overwhelmed and in awe of the charm and design elements of this house! Everyone was blown away with the quality of the staff, the service, even down to the tiniest detail. Rock stone bathtubs, contemporary chandeliers from South Africa, palm thatched roof, and art from around the world. Each room is a mix of contemporary and classic, bohemian chic. They spared no expense! There is no shortage of lounging options and hammocks to surprise you all over the property. There might even be one in one of the master suites!
Since Casa Koko is located in the Punta Mita development all guests have access to three of the beach clubs that are nearby for residents during their stay. With water sports, additional food and beverage options and swimming pools it just adds to the amenities of the house. Its hard to pull yourself away from the villa but if you have to there are activities available nearby… stroll through the charming town of Sayulita, take a jungle UTV tour, enjoy a round of golf, afternoon sailing excursion or try your hand at fishing!
We were treated to magnificent meals at Casa Koko. Dining together at many different locations at the house added to feeling so pampered and special. We were spoiled by our butler unpacking us into each of our suites. Ramon the waiter serves up exquisite margaritas and light snacks are abundant whenever you might feel the slightest hunger pain. We were in love with their quesadillas which were the perfect snack while lounging by the oceanfront infinity swimming pool! Each meal was delightful from grilled steak with risotto, grilled lobster, fresh fish and local delights of light rice with a selection of fajitas. We enjoyed wine paired meals and they even provide smores by the fire at the sand terrace. Our last dinner was a “white party” where each guest wore white (which added a great photo opp!) It doesn’t hurt to have an up and coming musician in our group who serenaded us by the candlelight on our last night. It was the end to a magical stay.
Depending on how many people and if your stay is high or low season rates can start as low as $5,000 per night and go up to around $20,000 during Christmas and New Year’s. Your travel agent can discuss with you exact pricing based on your group and customize your stay. This home is the perfect backdrop to any family trip or celebration. Our group is having withdrawals and missing every second we spent at Casa Koko and miss each and every one of the staff. It is a trip to remember and I hope you will consider Casa Koko for your next destination.
